Natural Resource Protection
Virginia is not immune to natural resource damage. This bird was covered by oil from a 1976 oil spill into the Chesapeake Bay.
As population and growth occur, competition for natural resources increases. From minerals to water and everything in between, natural resources are under strain throughout Virginia, and indeed, in much of the world.
The Environmental Law Group provides representation for citizens seeking to protect their water rights and timber and mineral resources, as well as provides opposition to waste, abuse and environmental damage from adjoining or nearby operations.
Both groundwater quality and quantity are under challenge in Virginia, and The Environmental Law Group has successfully litigated cases involving groundwater and surface water diversion, permitting private claims. Whatever the resource in question, the scientific backgrounds of all Environmental Law Group attorneys can provide litigation assistance; appearance before local, state and federal agencies; and preparation of corrective legislation.
